Bob Geldof said he was "beyond pain" as he confirmed the death of his 25-year-old daughter Peaches, whose body was found by police at her home in Kent.
Peaches Geldof, daughter of the singer and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, was pronounced dead by ambulance crews after police were called to her home in Wrotham at 1.35pm on Monday "following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman".
Police are treating her death as unexplained and are working to establish the circumstances.
Bob Geldof said: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. Writing 'was' destroys me afresh.
